I loved staying at Fortaleza hostel! The staff were very helpful and told me about tons of great hikes. The lao lao forest is just up the road and is a magical place! We went out for beers at a local cervezeria and had a great night with everyone in the hostel. The porch is so peaceful- a great place...

Fortaleza Hostel is one of the most welcoming, warm and wonderful hostels I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. It felt like a family not a hostel. I hope one day I will return. Thank you so much to the beautiful volunteers and Mariel for making my stay so wonderful.

I really enjoyed staying in this hostel. First I booked for two night, but since I really liked it staying in the hostel, I was staying there in total for 4 nights. The staff is super kind, social and open and they are very willing to help you with making plans for the day. The breakfast was DELICIOUS, simple but...

The stay in this hostel was a very nice experience. It is very organized and clean, has a nice, friendly atmosphere, and even getting there isn't complicated. The girls are kind and helpful, and one of them make the best pancakes in the world for breakfast. Stay here since it's nicer and cheaper than in the center!

This is a very cozy, eco-lodge. It's basically a treehouse. Mariel y Cecilia are the friendliest people you could ask for and the breakfast is incredible: Fresh pancakes every morning. If you want a city vibe, don't go for this. It is 15.5 km out of town (like most things) but most of the treks are more near to the...

Lovely room, lovely staff, lovely breakfast! The hostel is out of town but in my opinion this is much better as it is much closer to all the activities you want to do in the day and much more peaceful. Can't fault it! :)

We stayed in a private room with private bath. The room and the setting itself are pretty simple and what you would expect for a hostel. The hostel is clean and reasonably quiet. It is staffed with several friendly young people. We spent a pleasant evening chatting in our broken Spanish. They even shared their food with us because we...

Highly recommended, It's a very friendly hostel away from the main town. Stayed in an on-suite double room which was comfortable. Enjoyed the spacious communal living area / kitchen, felt totally chilled out. The timber constructed hostel is visually appealing both inside and out, the only downside is noise travel easily. Would love to spend more time there again someday.

As we opened the door we felt at home. It is a nice place to relax and meet other travelers. The breakfast was wonderful. We liked not beeing in the city. The location was perfect, on km 15.5. It is near from Cerro Campanario (3.5 km). Mariella and Mark were wonderful hosts, with plenty of tips spending your day around...
